    Hi @hesbecarooly - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining for your daughter. What sort of help have you had difficulty with? We have a CP Specialist Information Officer who I'm sure will try to help you with any queries. :)

    Welcome to the community from me too @hesbecarooly :) Please do let us know whether there's any help in particular you're looking for.

    Do you mind us asking how old your daughter is, and whether this was a new diagnosis? You don't have to share this information if you're not comfortable, of course, it just might help us to send you more relevant information and advice. 

    As chiarieds has said, we have a Specialist Information Officer for CP, @Richard_Scope, who's always happy to help!
    Online Community Coordinator, she/her
